  6. Comparative Anatomy and Phylogeny of Primate Muscles and Human Evolution

    By Rui Diogo, Bernard A. Wood

    This book challenges the assumption that morphological data are inherently unsuitable for phylogeny reconstruction, argues that both molecular and morphological phylogenies should play a major role in systematics, and provides the most comprehensive review of the comparative anatomy, homologies and...
